Toy-lacing from felt
Developing toy-lacing from the felt "Rainbow Bug"
Laces are recommended for games for children from 1.5 years. First, the child needs to be shown how to use a lace to connect parts. After he masters this type of game, tasks can be complicated, making them thematic. With the help of toy-laces, the child develops fine motor skills, which has a positive effect on speech development. While playing, the kid learns to handle the laces. The rainbow turtle will help in the study of colors, learn about such concepts as big and small, one and many, with the help of parents will learn to count. For the manufacture of toy-lacing does not need special sewing skills, as well as a large list of materials. It will be required:
Multicolored sewing threads, needles, scissors.
Felt of different colors (thickness 1-1.2 mm, hard), drawstring (bright color),buttons for eyes and decor, a tool for punching holes and installation of eyelets, eyelets (you can do without them). If there are beads of black color - 12 pieces for the eyes of small turtles. Prepare the details The mum-bug consists of a base on which decorative elements are sewn. The base can be made of any color.
We have a pattern on the sheet of felt (I have been in the hands of the kid, slightly crushed), we draw around it with a marker for the fabric or pin it with pins, cut it out.
Next, from the pattern of the base we make the patterns of the main elements:
1 - head (1 part), 2 - leg (4 parts), 4 - tail (1 part). These elements are cut out of felt brown.
3 - a triangle (6 parts) - all of different colors. 5 - a circle (1 detail) different from all colors used in a turtle. Turtles- The children also consist of a base (brown felt) on which a brown head and a hexagonal shell are sewn, the color of which repeats the color of the triangle of the mother's shell.
Cut out 6 bases.
6 elements of the head and 6 hexagon-shells . The details of the head, as in the big turtle, should be with an allowance for armor. Putting together a toy
Embroider on the heads of our mouths.
Mother sews buttons-eyes, children have French nodules (beads).
To the base of the big turtle we sew the head, paws and tail, in babies' heads. Threads are selected in the tone of felt.
One by one, triangles are sewn onto the shell of the mother and, without changing the color of the thread,hexagon-shell baby.
Change the color of the thread, sew a second triangle and a hexagon.
It turned out such a bright turtle family.
Added rigidity to the toy in the center of the shell circle. You can decorate it with a curly button.
The big turtle is ready.

We have small turtles on mom's armor, make space for holes.
Punch through tool for installing eyelets holes. You can stop here. At desire it is possible to establish the cringle on each opening.I did not do this. The baby is small, there is a risk that the eyelet will be torn off and used for other purposes.
With the help of lace we attach turtles to mom's shell.
You can also collect turtles on a string - you get improvised beads.
